William's Treasureby Dan Reeder
William's Treasure is a 40 page, water-color and pen and ink illustrated book intended for bright children and childlike adults. William is a little dragon who lives in the forest. His life is simple and serene, although punctuated by episodes of frivolity and pure joy. That is, until one evening, when he decides to investigate a strange but alluring glow on the horizon and discovers a brilliantly lit, powerfully enticing, treasure-trove of a place called, "Stuff for U!" The moment William steps into the place he is caught in a web of desire. A new William emerges, one that wants stuff. He starts collecting things, first by the handful, then the armful, a wagon load, a small heap, and ultimately a gigantic pile. Concurrently, his innocent, happy life gives way to one of worry, anxiety, paranoia, and an insatiable appetite for more. Eventually, the need to reclaim his old blissful self pulls William off his pile of stuff and sends him back to his forest home.
